books to Selwyn College drop off location

Kathryn from Royal Oak

I understand from a message on Neighbourly yesterday that there was a flood which destroyed many books which had already been donated.

I dropped off some books about midday today and was concerned to see that the drop-off point was not at all well protected from the weather.

I understand from a message on Neighbourly yesterday that there was a flood which destroyed many books which had already been donated.

I dropped off some books about midday today and was concerned to see that the drop-off point was not at all well protected from the weather.

There was also a sign which stated what sort of books NOT wanted, but this was too late to be taken into consideration.

The organisers need to put more information on their website so that people donating know in advance. I am sad to think that some of my quite valuable books may be damaged before the book fair even happens.

Poll: How do you fold your towels?

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, is there a right way to fold towels? It seems it's a topic lots of people have strong opinions about.

The most popular options are the quick-and-easy triple fold, or folding the outer edges towards the centre before folding in thirds, to create a plusher, more spa-like look. … View more
Hey neighbours, is there a right way to fold towels? It seems it's a topic lots of people have strong opinions about.

The most popular options are the quick-and-easy triple fold, or folding the outer edges towards the centre before folding in thirds, to create a plusher, more spa-like look. But what do you do? And who knew folding towels could be so controversial?

Not everyone trapped by alcohol is an alcoholic

There is help for families affected by problem drinking.

In extreme cases, an alcoholic may be homeless, but many live in families that are struggling because of the challenges that come with problem drinking.

Family members become lonely, isolated, ashamed and depressed. They feel that life has become unmanageable or unbearable. Al-Anon-Alateen Family Groups is a support programme for people who are living with or have lived with the problems of someone else's drinking.

Al-Anon and Alateen for young people offer understanding and personal growth - whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not. There are free of charge meetings daily around Auckland. To find one visit online here.

Members share their experiences of applying the Al-Anon principles to their lives. There is no advice given or specific direction suggested.

Below are a few thoughts from people who have tried Al-Anon:

"I believed that the only thing I needed to be happy and safe was for my husband to stop drinking."

"My life had got so out of control not knowing what my state my daughter would be in when I got home."

"I thought I was strong enough to deal with this on my own...After trying everything, I went to my first meeting."
